This online recruitment platform assists skilled Moms find meaningful, part-time and flexible employment opportunities. RecruitMyMom has played a critical role within the recruitment industry, having created a trusted platform that connects employers to this specific group of job-seekers.

This platform helps mothers find jobs based on both their unofficial and official qualifications. Whether it’s chefs, cleaners, party-planners, coaches, hairdressers, nurses and taxi drivers, or  human resources, research, writing, graphic design, accounting, customer service, sales, legal, strategic planning, and science skills.

“The business started because I saw that there was an opportunity in South Africa to aggregate skills for women who previously had careers but had decided to stop largely because they wanted to start a family or integrate their work with their family. At the time, there weren’t many agencies that would be interested in part-time or flexible work,” explains Phillipa Geard, Founder of RecruitMyMom.

In 2017, Phillipa Geard won the National Woman in Business Champion presented by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC), in association with World Famous Events.
